Note to Self...


Note to Self:


1) My basset will pull a whole bag of flour out of the pantry and dump the entirety on the carpet in a pile that stands 5 inches above the carpet.


2) My children will walk around this giant mound of flour in the middle of the living room carpet, pretending it isn't there and claiming they never saw it.


3) I will bring a friend home making the customary disclaimer, "My house is a mess," without realizing how true that is because there's a mound of flour in the middle of the living room carpet - that the basset dragged out of the pantry and dumped - that my kids walked around, ignoring.


4) Flour is so fine a powder that even my Dyson Animal can't pick it all up. Cocaine - sure. Angel Dust - of course. Anthrax - any day. Flour - not a chance.


5) My friends find it easier to believe that I dumped $8,000 worth of cocaine on my carpet than the truth that I have a flour-snorting basset.



I'm off to rent an industrial-strength suction machine thingy.

I could probably handle the initial dumping of the flour by the pooch. But my head would explode if my child claimed she didn't see it. Ex. Plode.

Okay, sorry, but I had to laugh. I have a teenager (and an 8yr. old) and a hubs and they ALL would have walked right by it.

Leslie Langtry said...

Thank god. I thought everyone else's kids wouldn't do that.

Leslie--Uh huh. Um...is this supposed to be unusual?

Robin ->who uses a shop vac in her house and wouldn't dare get carpet.

*LOL* Sounds about right. And I wouldn't believe it was flour either. *LOL*
